Singer-songwriter Diana Jones brings the inspiring sounds of old-time Appalachia music to her new album, recorded at The Museum of Appalachia in Clinton, Tennessee. Featuring 11 original songs recorded live with two musicians and a crackling fireplace in the background, ‘Museum of Appalachia Recordings’, due for release on the 8th July, harkens back to a day when music was played and recorded live, and not adorned with the latest tricks in recording technology.
Accompanied by fellow musicians Matt Combs and Shad Cobb, Diana Jones offers an astonishing set of original material. Widely known for her songwriting expertise (Pony, Henry Russell’s Last Words), Diana Jones’s storytelling reaches new heights as she explores timeless subjects that are as relevant today as they were in the last century. And her singing is that rarest of gifts: a pure and original voice that is unmistakably her own.
Pity Sex’s long-awaited debut full-length album, “Feast Of Love,” has arrived just in time for summer. Following the impressive work on the Dark World EP that some consider as the revival of emo, this midwestern indie band has been on theradar for the past year.
“Feast Of Love” is like the anticipated conversation that follows after an inexplicable mental breakdown. This album calls for no moshing— instead, turn off the lights, sway to the rhythm and lose yourself inthe sound. There is a sense of subtlety— the dismal lyrics are spoken softly behind dominant guitar shredding and pervasive drumming. Every song hits you with emotion, setting the mood in the darkest and brightest of atmospheres. Pity Sex attempts to balance the light with the heavy, and they do it well. And where there is angst, there is also an underlying sensation of passion that should not go unnoticed.
